Every item bought these days has one of these hidden somewhere. A small, almost transparent bag filled with only God knows what (apparently, its silica gel beads). But what is their purpose, and why are they everywhere we go? As it turns out, they are there to absorb moist.
Did you ever ask yourself how do tiny bags full of silica gel beads manage to observe so much moisture and keep our things fresh and dry? These magical silica beads can observe up to 50% of moisture, so next time it gets too humid and too sticky, use a silica gel pack and let it do its wonders.
Necks on Beer and Soda Bottles
Having a beer with some friends on a hot summer afternoon is a real uplifter. But having a warm beer can be a real downer, and this is exactly what we are here for. To make sure you never have a hot beer in your life again. The designers behind the beer bottles thought of that as well.
Instead of adding a "how to use" label on the bottle's label ( which would look a bit weird), the designers simply extended the bootle's neck, encouraging drinkers to hold the bottle at the neck. This way, the beer wouldn't warm up from the body's heat. Now, how cool is that?
We all know that everyone can adjust the headrest to their own height. (Let us let you on a small secret, we had no idea those headrests could be altered. We are not very good with detachable things in our vehicle. Anyway, did you know what lies behind the two metal bars that are left sticking out of the seat? Survival, everyone, survival.
If you are accidentally caught inside a car with no way out, remember this. Detach the headset and use the metal bars to smash one of the windows. Apparently, there are things that can be found in your car's headrest you never knew of.
Rubber Bumps in Your Tire Tread
When you take your driver's license, you are taught not only to drive a car but also how to blend in with on-the-go traffic, read the road signs, and take care of your car. No one is going to do this for you.
Changing the car's tires in time is a life-saving thing. Driving with worn-out tires on a wet road, for example, can make you lose control of the car and be in a very unpleasant situation. The small rubber bumps on the tires indicate exactly when it is their time to be changed. If they are worn out, it is time.
The Lines on a Solo Cup
The solo cups came to life in the 1970s, being the first disposal cups to be used. Solo seemed to be a great name for something that was intended to be used only once. Have a look at this interesting detail on the cup that most users haven't noticed.
The lined decorations of the cup are there to measure up the liquid. The bottom line, for example, is a recommended serving for any type of liqueur, the middle for wine, and so on. So when you're at your next party and wine is served in solo cups, make sure no one tries to rip you off.
